The Joy of less Book 1 – Discovering Your Inner Minimalist

The Joy of less Book 2 – Decluttering Your Environment

Book 1

Simplify your life and discover the Joys that come from minimalist living.
What if you could live on purpose and reduce or eliminate most of the stress and worry that you experience on a daily basis?

Overwhelmed and exhausted, we tend to hit the ground running every morning without much thought to what exactly we are doing or why we’re doing it. Phone calls, texts, e-mails, Kids sports and yoga classes. It’s all a blur of activity and deadlines. Are these activities meaningful to you? Are they contributing to your joy and serenity or is the mindless rushing about simply a way of not thinking about what’s really important?

˃˃˃ The ability to simplify life is the ability to declutter your soul and live with emotional simplicity.

Simple organized living is a wonderful concept but it takes more than throwing a bunch of unwanted stuff in a box and making a dump run. It requires a paradigm shift and a commitment to doing things in a different way. An attitude shift towards the things you have and the things you want. Before you simplify your space, you need to be able to be emotionally and spiritually ready to not only handle the decluttering projects you are going to tackle but to permanently change your habits and attitudes towards your material possessions as well as your relationships.

˃˃˃ This is Book one of the two part “Joy of less” series,

In it, Cary David Richards details how he and his wife Jeannie were forced by circumstances to downsize and simplify. How over time they came to understand that minimalism has some very tangible and important long term benefits.

From reduced stress to being able to think with clarity and vision, Cary and Jeannie’s minimalist journey will illuminate the joy and explain the challenges of a life lived with Less and an existence filled with freedom and happiness.

˃˃˃ Block some time out of your busy schedule

Let Cary David explain how to painlessly and effectively de-clutter you from the inside out and prepare you for the minimalist path.

 

BOOK 2

A minimalist cheat sheet for simple organized living.
How to get off the stress, complexity and overwhelm merry-go-round and simplify your life.

The second book in Cary David Richard’s two book series on minimalist living details how to simplify your space and gives you down to earth real world strategies for declutering your home.

After being forced by circumstances to downsize and simplify Cary David and his wife Jeannie came to realize that their new minimalist life style had some very tangible and far reaching benefits. They began to re-think their previous lives of consumerism and the habit of accumulating more and more “stuff”.

˃˃˃ The ability to simplify life is the ability to declutter your soul, be present and in the moment and live with emotinal clarity.

Through the conscious implementation of minimalist living concepts, the couple realized that living with less brought a freedom and serenity not available in their previous lives.

Never setting out to become minimalist, they embarked on a journey of simplicity and discovered what was most important to them in the process.

˃˃˃ Reading this book will re arrange how you view your possessions

Through the lessons that Cary David and Jeannie learned over the last seven years of exploring minimalism you will come away with a new understanding of the benefits of decluttering your life.

Once free of the burden of clutter and complexity new vistas will open to you. Just imagine being able to breathe again, living in a serene, nurturing, welcoming environment, free of stress and worry.

Get ready to relearn everything you thought you knew about what a successful career path can look like.

Today, unemployment hovers at a near-record high, yet 3.5 million American jobs remain unfilled. Why? Because companies simply cannot find people with the skills they actually need.

The good news is that this skills gap represents unprecedented opportunities for every person seeking a successful and exciting career. But these opportunities can’t be found inside the walls of the traditional classroom. Instead, they lie in the myriad of educational options that provide the technical, vocational, and soft skills on demand in today’s workplace, such as:

Professional certifications: Start your career faster in fields like bioscience aviation, culinary arts, and medical technology.

Associates degrees: Increase earning potential through inexpensive 2-year programs in subjects like civil engineering, environmental science, education, and nursing.

Apprenticeships: Earn while you learn under the direct supervision of a skilled expert. Far beyond the artisan trades, today’s apprenticeships can be found at companies like Volkswagen and Siemens.

Occupational learning: Refresh or reboot your skill sets through on-the-job training or online education.

In Job U, you’ll learn about these paths to rewarding occupations; where to find them and how to parlay them into the best paying job in any field. And along the way, you’ll meet individuals of all ages who have attained their “dream jobs” through a non-traditional education: from an emergency air paramedic, to a lead mechanic of a racecar team, to an engineer of complex gas turbine generators, to a bestselling cookbook author.

Whether you are recent high school or college graduate, or well along in your career journey, Job U will help you find your way to a more secure and prosperous future.

Life with Tourette Syndrome and
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Chris MasonInterview with Chris Mason

 Author of:

What Makes Me Tic:
Living With Tourette Syndrome

A memoir about Chris’ life with Tourette Syndrome
and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

About the Book:

ChrisMason-What makes me ticWritten by Chris Mason and taken directly from his own life experiences, ‘What Makes Me Tic: Living With Tourette Syndrome’ aims to raise honest awareness of the realities and truths of living with one of the world’s most misunderstood Neuropsychiatric disorders. The book quashes misconceptions and exposes many facets of the disorder that are rarely made public.

Chris’ biggest challenge has been a daily battle with both Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Readers will laugh, they will cry; they’ll be shocked at what they didn’t know and be ashamed by their previous assumptions. In all, he tells a brutally-honest story that attempts to put readers in his shoes.

 

 

Why did you write this book?

“I am proud of who I am and am blessed to be in a position to help raise awareness on behalf of Tourette Syndrome sufferers around the world. If I can change how just one person thinks, it will all be worth my time. However, I intend to enlighten the masses – it’s time attitudes changed!”

 

Tell us about your diagnosis.

I am a forty-four-years old now. I began having symptoms of Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the age of six, but I wasn’t diagnosed until age twenty. For the fourteen years in between I wondered why I had these strange symptoms and why I was different than everyone else. I had trouble in school because of behavior problems and learning disorders. I also have some undiagnosed mental illnesses. I am now on medication, which has totally rid me of all my tics, but at a price. The medication has many side effects that I have been dealing with and trying to control, with no avail, for the twenty-three years I have been taking it. I know that unless there is a cure I will be on medication for the rest of my life.

 

Have you written about Tourette Syndrome before?

This is my second book. My first book (Touretties) was published in 2011. It is an anthology that includes twenty-one true short stories, including my own, about people who have or have a family member who has Tourette Syndrome and its associated disorders. It will be re-released with seven new stories, under the title “Touretters Are Us” early in the year 2015.  I am also working on a children’s picture book that includes four true stories about young people, written in their own words, that have Tourette Syndrome. I am also working on a full-length book about coaching youth soccer in the U.S.

 

How did writing this book help you?

It was very therapeutic for me. I also learned that I have helped a lot of people who have read the book, because they told me I did, by letting them know that they are not alone in their struggles with these disorders.

 

Was it difficult to share your personal experiences with others, in the book?

It was very difficult, especially since it brought back a lot of bad memories, but I realize that telling my story is the best way I know of for me to raise awareness for the disorders. Even if only one person gains a greater understanding of Tourette’s and OCD as a result of reading my book it will be well worth the time and effort it took to write it.

Meet Aaliyah Anderson, a beautiful, intelligent, ambitious thirteen-year-old young woman ready to take over the world. With her mom being a superstar broadcast journalist and her older brother Damon being an acclaimed writer and star sports player. Aaliyah lives a fantastic life. Aaliyah quickly learns that her good life, doesn’t separate her from life’s problems. She has to deal with tons of hardships and avoid many obstacles along her path to achieving her short term goal of finally making it to high school and what she feels will bring her closer to her dreams of being a CEO of a company.

Aaliyah has to deal with overwhelming family issues such as the divorce of her parents and the result of her “father’s” unfaithfulness, infidelity, and a family secret that turns her world upside down. As if her family wasn’t messed up enough, her eleven-year old brother turns to the streets and joins the Eastside Rydahz, one of the most notorious gangs in the city. Her eldest brother Jeffery, or high-ranked Rydah 808, hates everything about Aaliyah and she doesn’t understand it. All Aaliyah wants is to have the ideal loving, united family and it hurts her that their situation is seemingly fractured beyond repair.

To make things even more pressing, she lives in the ruthless city of Willowsfield, statistically the #1 most dangerous city in America, where senseless community violence is the norm and life expectancy is low. With the pressure to succeed and make it out of the ditch that Aaliyah calls her hometown, she still has to deal with more problems that test her patience.

With its realistic characters, life-like setting and dynamic message, The Diary of Aaliyah Anderson is entertaining and a sure fire conversation starter on what we need to do as a generation.

A World Without End – Christian Fiction

A World Without End

 

Christian Fiction
by John Probst

Throughout the ages, many different religions have presented their idea of the origins of mankind. Ideas of God are represented worldwide in an attempt to provide people with three specific answers. The questions that are asked include where do we come from, why are we here, and where are we going after death. Those that are skeptical of religions often believe that religion is no more than a crutch, a way of making people feel more comfort as they progress through life, moving toward the ultimate debt that all people have to pay. However, for those that are true believers, individuals that have found that the religion of Christianity provides them with the truth about the nature of God and reality that brings them the most comfort, there are controversial ideas surrounding this religion, some of which are seldomly discussed.

In A World Without End, a story that is fictional in nature, but one that provides an interesting perspective on the origins of God and mankind as taken from the Bible. Familiar stories such as the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the destruction of the Tower of Babel, Noah the Great Flood, and of course the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, are well known throughout most of the world today. There are common beliefs that are taught within the context of the church, what true believers tend to believe. However, there are fringe concepts, those that are both controversial, and also truths that are not properly understood, many of which are discussed in A World Without End.

This story presents the quest of two fallen angels, Allaric and Llyrica, that have realized they made the wrong choice. In a battle between the Archangel Michael and Satan in Heaven, they found themselves hedged on the wrong side. Through their choice of following Satan, they were cast into the depths of hell, where Satan plans to avenge their defeat. Through interactions with fallen angels that become demons, in their quest for the souls of mankind, Allaric and Llyrica try to find salvation with the help of the angel Metatron, in their quest to reenter the Gates of Heaven.

A World Without End discusses many controversial topics such as the 5 Detriments of Mankind, the real reason that Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden, and the real path of Salvation. It also helps you understand the Immaculate Conception and the true nature of Mary the Blessed Mother of God. Finally, through the eyes of Allaric and Llyrica, we get to witness everything from the point of creation, to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Savior of Mankind, and the plan that God has for all of us after the Second Coming of Christ.

So journey with us in this fictional account of two angels, Allaric and Llyrica, on their quest for salvation, for knowledge, and how they discover that this truly is a world without end.

In this brutally honest memoir, a French immigrant with Cameroonian roots rises above his abusive childhood and rebellious teenage years to become an inspirational American success story.

Francis Nzeutem’s parents left impoverished Cameroon for a new life in France before he was born, but they carried the cultural baggage of their homeland with them. Francis’ father beat his children and wife mercilessly, and his mother was powerless to help herself or her kids. Francis studied to earn his father’s approval, but years of abuse left him a rebellious, angry young man. He joined a Parisian gang, and his future looked grim.

FrancisNzeutem-bookHowever, soon visits to Cameroon and the United States would awaken an unquenchable thirst for success. Francis moved to America, married a lovely woman, and started a family. He pushed himself professionally and academically, working his way up the corporate ladder and earning two degrees. Through it all, he rebelled against the tyranny he’d experienced as a child. His own children, he swore, would never fear their father.

From the Streets to Wall Street is the unique story of a Frenchman with African roots who becomes a successful American businessman. In this compelling memoir, Francis experiences the cultures of three continents, embraces the empowering message of old-school political rap music, and puts the past behind him to create a better future for himself and his family.

Are You in Pain? Meet Dr. David Schechter!


Interview with Pain Reduction Specialist:
Dr. David Schechter

DavidSchechter

Dr. Schechter is the Author of:
Think Away Your Pain

(Your Brain is the Solution To Your Pain)

 

Over the last twenty years in private practice, Dr. Schechter has conventionally treated many thousands of individuals for sports injuries, acute back pain, etc. But of interest to many, Dr. Schechter has treated over two thousand chronic pain patients with the TMS/MBS healing model. He has published several papers on his work, mostly while Principal Investigator for the Seligman Medical Institute which funded this work for four years.

Dr. Schechter is in private practice in Beverly Hills and Culver City, California seeing general patients, sports and other musculoskeletal injuries, back pain, etc. He is internally known for his work with chronic pain– pain that persists, is difficult to diagnose and has not been successfully treated by conventional and alternative approaches.

 

Dr. Schechter is able to explain the mechanism involved and tell you not only what to think about pain but challenge you to explore how to think about pain to get relief…

Andrew Weil, MD, Author of 8 Weeks to Optimum Health and Healthy Aging

 

*** Interview ***

 

DavidSchechter_pain book Your book addresses a very common and challenging problem: pain. With so many traditional and alternative medicine treatment options available to pain sufferers, how are your methods different?

Most pain treatment methods are based upon the premise of a bio-mechanical reason for the pain. In Think Away Your Pain (Your Brain is the Solution to Your Pain), we explain a brain-based, mind-body, psychological and cognitive based treatment method.

 

Are these methods practical for most people and for most types of pain? Who is most likely to benefit and least likely?

If your problem is truly structural, the program is not for you. The program however is for the millions of people with prolonged, persistent, chronic pain that has been hard or Impossible to treat effectively in conventional and alternative medicine. The pain persists, it’s hard to pinpoint ,the treatments don’t work, or are temporary and…. The stress is building up and makes the pain worse.

 

How difficult is it for someone to master your methods so that pain relief is achieved?

Like anything worthwhile, it takes some time and effort. But the point is—it’s a treatment you learn and empowers you to heal. It can end the seemingly endless trips to practitioners to seek relief. Rather, it teaches you to change the neural pathways responsible for the persistent pain.

 

How long does it generally take for these methods to yield results?

Varies from person to person. Some relief—days to weeks. Much relief, more weeks. Complete relief, a few months, sometimes less, sometimes more.

 

What is your message for skeptics who see your suggestions as example of “guru science” that causes people to reject proven traditional medical treatments?

I provide lots of scientific evidence from brain research, psychology research, neuroscience, that supports this approach in various ways. The scientific evidence is very powerful that this is not ‘guru’ science, or trickery. It is actually a brain-based, scientifically supported, research proven method for effective treatment of chronic pain in the back, neck, arms, pelvis, etc.

 

Is this your first book?     

No, The MindBody Workbook has been selling for fifteen years.

 

Tell us about your book? What inspired you to write it?

I wanted more people to learn about this treatment approach and method given the success I have had with over 2000 patients in my office.   I wanted to update the work of prior authors in this field.

 

Is this book part of a series? Do you have related books?

Related items include the MindBody Workbook as well as educational CD’s and DVD”s entitled The MindBody Audio Program and the MindBody Patient Panel

 

What do you want our audience to know about you? 

I learned this method when Dr. John Sarno treated me for pain while I was a medical student.

 

Who do you think will benefit most from this book? Who are you speaking to?     

I’m speaking to the pain sufferer who is willing to look at his/her problem in a fresh way, be open to a new paradigm (approach) and is willing to think psychologically, not physically about the problem.   (the brain, not the back, so to speak)

 

What do you hope readers will “take away” from reading your book?   

That there is hope for people who haven’t been helped by other bio-medical approaches to pain. That the mind plays a huge role in health and disease AND that your mind can be the solution to your pain problem.

 

————————————————————————-

MORE ABOUT DR SCHECHTER

Julia Hawke and her friend Rachel are celebrating the end of their final year of schooling. They deceive their parents and embark on an adventure to the Gold Coast of Queensland.

Many years later, Julia is still keeping secrets in an attempt to hide what happened during those few, fateful days. A series of events force her to realise that keeping these secrets comes at too great a cost. What can Julia do to regain the trust of those she loves?

“The Secrets of Julia Hawke” explores, not only the destructive nature of secrets, but also the miracle of unconditional friendship.

 

Meet the Author: Brenda Cheers

Brenda_Cheers_printfinal_4in_x_4inBrenda Cheers is a novelist and short story writer, living in Brisbane, Australia. Her passions are art-house motion pictures and literary fiction. “The Secrets of Julia Hawke” is her sixth published novel.

Brenda is known for doing everything in life very quickly so it came as no surprise to the people closest to her that once she decided on a career as a novelist, it all happened with blinding speed.

A course in Creative Writing was quickly followed by a more advanced one. She began drafting her first novel and then completed three full manuscripts in the next two years.

Her great love is Literary Fiction and this is what she aims to write. Fast-paced suspense novels are what fly from her fingertips, however and these tend to feature strong-willed female protagonists as in ‘In a House in Yemen’ and ‘In Times of Trouble’.

In her third novel, ‘In Conversations with Strangers’ there is a different mood. It has a slower pace and the character is troubled and flawed. Brenda felt it was harder to write but more rewarding.

“In Strange Worlds” was published in January 2014. This is a suspense novel which contains surprises and twists. Brenda completed four full drafts before being satisfied with the result, but she found the work enjoyable because the story held her interest.
